The wait is nearly over. The game is being detailed left and right by the media,… the amiibo have been announced,… and the Nintendo Switch is imminent… The Legend of Zelda series has been a special one for Nintendo fans since it began and the next chapter starts on March 3rd, 2017.
A hero's tale begins anew. Open your eyes and see what is true.
Fun Facts: Vast open world where you could go find the end of the game within 15 minutes… but you won't survive it. Weapons have stats and durability. Climb pretty much anything you want. Eat and cook to regain health. Full voice-acting for all except Link
Lets use this thread to discuss the game on the Nintendo Switch. To help hold the tide of the wait, here are some beautiful screenshots and links for your perusal.
Hm, the game loop is starting to wear a little thin lately. I'm not stumbling across as many Shrines anymore. And I'm finding that having a horse isn't all that helpful...you can't scale a cliff (or tower) with one, let alone glide down from a high peak. I know I've barely scratched the surface of this game (only woken two Divine Beasts) but this is starting to get a little old. I'll keep pushing through, though.
Getting really tired of all this rain. And c'mon, wearing just *ONE* piece of metal is going to cause me to get struck by lightning? Like, 90% of the time? C'mon, now. That's just getting in the way of me having fun with the game. That in particular is starting to get really annoying.
AND WHAT IS UP WITH THOSE LONG DRAGONS IN THE SKY.
There is also some item that detects when shrines are near. I actually turned it off until I was down to the last 10 or so shrines I was having trouble finding because I wanted to explore and find them on my own, but if you want to find shrines it's probably pretty helpful!
There's a suit of armor that helps with lightning, and one of the divine beast threads can help too.
I personally love the openness and aimlessness of Breath of the Wild, but I feel like there's a lot of real estate between an Ubisoft style, "barf all the icons on a map" style UI and something that would guide you to shit like armor that lets you climb more efficiently. The negaoryx clip is real.
Eh, it's not a HUGE deal. And I mean, there is a LOT to explore here so I want to see as much as I can. So maybe I'll just wander around for a bit before really progressing the main story. (though I did just beat the flying Divine Beast last night, haha)
